Mental health and a sense of wholeness is an essential element of healing. At Sana Lake, your individual growth will benefit from psychiatric services, which help reverse the damage of mental illness and addiction. Substance use disorder often goes hand in hand with other issues. Talk to a trained, compassionate psychiatrist and individual therapist about the problems that drag you down and keep you feeling stuck, unhappy, and sick. You deserve to enjoy a healthy mind and a healthy body.


Feelings of sadness, loneliness, and hopelessness are common for people struggling with substance use disorder. You will get relief from depression by finding support with trained professionals who will help break the cycle of negativity.

Depression frequently co-occurs with issues like addiction. It is not just a passing feeling—it sticks with you, and sometimes, you will end up getting stuck in a depression for months or even years. Also known as clinical depression or major depressive disorder, depression is significantly more serious than sad emotions.

You might find that depression shows up with substance use disorder and intensifies during active addiction. It is not uncommon for people to end up looking towards other substances in order to self-medicate. Sometimes, depression comes first; sometimes, addiction is what gets the ball rolling. Being trapped between the two will feel frightening and overwhelming.

Depression is a potentially debilitating mental health disorder, which is why it needs to be taken seriously. you will receive experienced, comforting care for your depression from staff who understand your struggle. No matter what started the cycle, it is possible for you to find relief.

Anxiety Disorders

Anxiety is a common term used to describe the nervous feeling that you may experience from time to time. Most people tend to feel anxious surrounding significant moments, such as before an important meeting, during a difficult test, or even when meeting a new person. While these feelings might be best described as feeling “anxious,” it is not the same as suffering from an anxiety disorder.

Anxiety disorder will be a debilitating ailment that will many times lead to drug or alcohol misuse. You might have misused anti-anxiety medications or other substances to self-medicate with alcohol or prescription medications.

At Sana Lake BWC, you will learn about why you feel anxious and get the tools you need to treat your anxiety. Instead of getting caught in the frightening cycle of anxiety, you will receive support from staff who know how to help you feel safe, grounded, and stable. Focusing on the causes and conditions of anxiety is immensely helpful, especially in a clinical setting. At Sana Lake BWC, you will be guided through the steps of de-escalating anxiety by staff who support you as you practice navigating recovery without fear.


Schizophrenia is a mental health disorder that impacts your behaviors, feelings, and cognition. Schizophrenia will cause you to feel disoriented, confused, and lost. What is real? What is true? People with schizophrenia will have difficulty distinguishing between the two. This mental health condition affects the way you think and feel. It will even cause you to lose touch with reality. Some of the symptoms of schizophrenia are:

  • Difficulty with decision-making
  • Having trouble focusing and concentrating
  • Negative effects on the memory and the ability to process and utilize information
  • Reduced emotional responses
  • Trouble experiencing genuine pleasure

Many people end up reaching for substances in order to self-medicate. Some people try to alleviate mood swings or other mental health issues with alcohol or prescription medications. Some people do not realize they have a mental health condition until after they enter recovery and start getting free from their addiction. Instead of guessing or struggling with self-diagnosis, you will learn about your needs from the experienced, compassionate staff at Sana Lake BWC. you will work with these experts at identifying complex mental health issues, such as schizophrenia. You will recover with a care plan that will give you relief from those negative cycles, plus supportive, healing treatment and mental health support for anything you face.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Trauma will have frightening, long lasting effects on the way your brain functions. Healing from trauma is an important part of recovery; untreated, unaddressed trauma will suck you right back into a self-destructive cycle of substance use. Filling those gaps and getting strong again will help ensure that your recovery is sustainable and strong. Many people who struggle with addiction also experience Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). This is a disorder that results from either a singular or multiple traumatic experiences. If you are dealing with PTSD, you might have survived violent situations, such as domestic abuse or a war zone.

PTSD also affects people who have witnessed an unsettling event, such as a car accident or even death. Your trauma is valid, no matter how “dramatic” the initial event was. It still affects you, so it is important to have tools to cope. Some of the symptoms of PTSD are flashbacks, avoidance of people or places related to the traumatic event, insomnia, agitation, and nightmares. You will work with our experienced, compassionate staff to identify complex mental health issues, such as PTSD. you will benefit from a broad spectrum of therapeutic tools to help you heal.

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is in the same family of mental health as substance use disorder, which we also call addiction. OCD is an anxiety disorder that is characterized by compulsions and obsessions. If you have OCD, you might have recurring, unwanted thoughts, ideas, or sensations. You might feel overwhelmed by a feeling of shame, as if nothing you will do is right. Sometimes, obsessive feelings might make you feel driven to do something repetitively—such as use substances or self-soothe in ways that are harmful or risky. OCD will be hard to understand if you have it. you will benefit from the guidance of compassionate specialists at Sana Lake BWC, who will help you make sense of the way your mind works as you regain your balance.


Sana Lake BWC supports your Recovery for Life with a variety of therapy programs, like individual, group, and family therapy.

Individual Therapy

Therapy is an incredible recovery support. you will begin to discover who you really are, and who you want to be. The relationship between you and your therapist will be life changing. When you are in an individual therapy session, you will work one-on-one with a professional therapist who is compassionate, understanding, and kind. You will find that being able to really talk about your experiences helps you understand your recovery better. Individual therapy is confidential, so you will also talk about things that you might be too embarrassed to bring up in a group setting. Your privacy and comfort are paramount at Sana Lake BWC.

Our specially trained therapists will work with you to identify the triggers and underlying causes of addiction. you will collaborate with your therapist in one-on-one sessions to develop a plan for your recovery. What would you like to do differently? What are the real issues? How do you want to address those issues in a healthy way? Therapy will help you experience huge improvements in your behavioral and emotional health. You feel better when you get a say in how you want to recover. Our team at Sana Lake BWC works to help you address your unique and specific needs throughout recovery.

Group Therapy

Group therapy is an important part of a recovery-oriented system of care because it represents a connection to other people in recovery. Learning how other people recover is a vital element of healing as an individual. At Sana Lake BWC, you will meet for group therapy and group counseling sessions with other members and licensed professionals. Our specialists guide group sessions so that everyone is heard, respected, and valued.

In group therapy, you will learn from others, offer support, and enrich your own recovery. At Sana Lake, group therapy helps create a community of people who will support and encourage one another through shared experiences. Group therapy will be beneficial for anyone, whether you have a strong family support system, or are feeling alone in your struggle. In group therapy, everyone knows what you are going through because they have been through it as well. You will let go of shame, fear, and feelings of isolation. We are all in this together.

Family Therapy

Addiction is a family disease. When one person is sick, it affects everyone. Also, trauma and other difficult experiences are often shared between generations or within a single home. Those negative feelings and unaddressed problems will undermine your recovery or create more trauma. In therapy, you will talk through difficult issues with your family. Our specially trained therapists guide each family therapy session so each family member will be heard. Just as addiction affects a whole family, recovery does too. During family therapy, you will feel safe and supported as you share about family events and personalities. At Sana Lake BWC, we help heal the whole family with sessions that empower family members to solve problems, communicate better, and make recovery a priority.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Everyone’s recovery journey is unique. Some people need more than one kind of support to get healthy. Going through withdrawal symptoms will be hard, but you do not have to white-knuckle it alone. Depending on how acute your substance use is, and its level of severity, you may benefit from Medically Assisted Treatment (MAT). During MAT, medications are used in conjunction with counseling and behavioral therapies, so you will get quick relief from the intense side effects of withdrawal. Substance use disorder is complex and responds to many types of treatment, like Suboxone, Vivitrol, methadone, and Antabuse (disulfiram). When you visit us for an assessment, a same-day doctor visit will help assess what is appropriate for you.

MAT is highly effective and useful, especially if you are struggling with opioid use disorders. Getting through withdrawal and the early stages of recovery with MAT sets you up for long-term success. MAT will assist you with sustaining recovery by creating a “safety net” that protects you from recurrence of use. MAT also helps with co-occurring disorders, where other mental health issues trigger substance use. When you combine MAT with therapy and supportive recovery services, you create optimal conditions for lasting wellness. you will be able to focus on your mental health journey as you move away from active addiction, toward recovery.

Peer Support

What is the secret ingredient for long lasting recovery? Other people. Addiction is a disease of isolation that keeps people separated from their family, community, and loved ones. Part of recovery is reconnecting in a healthy way with other people. Recovery relies on a strong safety net that extends beyond successfully completing treatment. After you take your first steps on the road to recovery, you will continue your journey with the help of peer support groups, such as group therapy and 12-Step programs like Alcoholics Anonymous.
